Salvation Army passes out “Blessing Buckets”

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- Many people have been struggling with basic needs during the pandemic.

The Salvation Army had the opportunity to provide some relief for some families that needed it today.

The organization distributed 1,200 “blessing buckets”.

The buckets were filled with food, hygiene products and other essentials.

God’s Pit Crew donated the 5 gallon buckets.

Leah Smith, with 2-Generation Tennessee Home/Pathway of Hope Program, says, “”Times are rough right now. For a lot of these families they are struggling to make ends meet and they need the hygiene products, which are a big thing and they are very expensive. So, it’s nice to be able to give them what they need so that they can spend their funds on utilities, food and other needs.”

The buckets were given away on a first come first serve basis.
